An Attendee Ticket Package consists of 1 ticket to the Government Acquisition Leaders Briefings, 1 ticket to the Opening Reception, and 1 ticket to the Closing Reception. Attendance to the John P. Murtha Breakfast and The Government Contracting Series is not included. Those items must be purchased separately.

Exhibitors must designate their personnel by name regarding who is receiving a ticket for each event. Names should be submitted online by April 21, 2017. Substitution of personnel is permitted, and can be accomplished by the same online form prior to April 21, 2017. If substitution is necessary after April 21, 2017, that information will be collected on-site at registration.

Name badges and event tickets are required for the Opening Reception, John P. Murtha Breakfast, and Closing Reception. Name badges and event tickets for all personnel from exhibiting companies must be picked up at the registration area located in the Cambria County War Memorial. Please consult the Agenda on this web site for registration times.

Each individual must present a current photo ID to receive his or her badge and tickets; a designee to pick up tickets for others is not permitted.

Note that name badges and tickets are not required for the The Government Contracting Series. Registrants attending just that event may proceed directly to that venue without visiting the registration area.

Admittance to the Government Procurement Expo in the War Memorial is obtained with your Showcase for Commerce name tag or the purchase of a general admission ticket, which is available for $10 in advance (until May 26, 2017) or $25 at the door.
